We are thrilled to announce Naomi Walker will serve as Bayou City Waterkeeper’s Mapping Water Injustices fellow and use GIS and other analytical tools to root out potential injustices in public infrastructure within our watershed.
Naomi is a graduate student at Texas Southern University pursuing a degree in Urban Planning and Environmental Policy, with a focus on Sustainability and Natural Resources. She has previously worked as an Environmental Research Assistant mapping the nutrient, contaminant, and bacteria levels of Buffalo Bayou. She is passionate about improving environmental injustices that degrade the health of communities and contribute to global climate change, environmental degradation, and food and water insecurity.
Throughout the year Bayou City Waterkeeper hosts law, policy, and science-minded students to help with our research, investigation, and analysis of issues affecting water quality, wetlands, and resilience to flooding and climate change across the greater Houston-Galveston region.
